testimonial at a hearing last year from stacy ritter, the twin daughters are both cancer survivors. they're 4 years old, they're twins. they're 4 years old, both were diagnosed with leukemia. hanna and madeline faced stem cell transplants, chemotherapy and total body eradiation. yet over time stacy said, we ended up bankrupt even with full insurance coverage. today hanna and madeline are happy, healthy 13-year-olds. and according to stacy, quote, my children now have protections from insurance discrimination based on their pre-existing cancer condition. they will never have to feel rescissions of their insurance policy if they get sick. they can look forward to lower health insurance cost and preventive care. we passed the affordable care act for people like stacy, hanna and madeline, we passed it for some of the people we heard from today at an earlier meeting and, madam speaker, i ask unanimous consent to submit their statements for the record. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. ms. pelosi: thank you. i urge my colleagues to think about them and to think about stacy and her childre

environmental reviews. another project that is just getting under way in the eighth district is the twin metals project which has also produced thousands of minnesota jobs for both construction and long-term operations. a 2009 study, the university of minnesota-duluth found that more than 12,000 minnesota construction jobs will be created in minnesota if all strategic metal mining projects currently under study moved forward. in 2009 the study also estimated that more than 5,000 direct long-term minnesota mining jobs would be created when all strategic metal mining projects currently under study become operational. minnesota needs these jobs and country needs the minerals that these mines produce. and everyone needs a definitive permitting timeline that is reliable. unfortunately this is not a unique project. seven years and $40 million is not even the worst example of inefficient permitting. many other mining projects have been stalled for even longer due to inefficient and at times ajend -- agenda-driven permitting process. another example is a mine in montana. it has been in the permitting p

not equipped, the plane had no warning system to the vortex ring state that affects the sails on the twin engines. so therefore, he said, what can i do? i'm sorry but at that time we were not convincing enough to the marine corps to give the wives the two letters. mr. speaker, i'd like to share with you that what created the problem after the accident on april 8 was actually the press release by the united states marine corps. the commandant at the time, a very fine gentleman, i've met with him several times, i think the world of him, we're not related even though my name is jones, is commandant jim jones. but the press release stated in july 27 of 2000, april 8 was the accident, this is the quote that gave the problem. unfortunately, the pilots' drive to accomplish that mission appears to have been the fatal factor. mr. speaker, i want to read that again. this is the press release from the united states marine corps after this tragic accident in arizona. unfortunately, the pilots' drive to accomplish that mission appears to have been the fatal factor. mr. speaker, again, i want to thank

twin towers, their communication systems did not allow them to communicate with each other, to talk to each other. and we finally on a bipartisan basis resolved that. we've also at the time of the passage of that legislation, mr. chairman, we all praised the legislation and we described the billions of dollars in new investment as well as the hundreds of thousands of jobs that will be created as the result of the legislation, calling it an economic game changer. now the nonpartisan congressional budget office, the c.b.o.'s analysis of the bill that you've dragged to the floor today, 4078, and what we're considering suggests that this legislation could delay this critical investment and the job creation that comes with it. my rhetorical question to the majority is, do you even know what you're doing? i don't think the left hand knows what the right hand is doing. now, i offered an amendment at the rules committee which was not made in order that would have exempted the legislation, which i'm referring to, that any agency rulemaking that creates jobs or protects public safety, includi

. when will they take responsibility for these twin crises -- the deficit and felt banking regulation? yes what we did to protect a single market. if he looks at the conclusions of the summit, he will see that it says very specifically that the single market and its integrity must be protected. on the question about are the eurozone funds sufficient? he is right to ask that question. we continue to sit at the bazookas are big enough. as for a description -- i think he ought to give up the hokey poeky and stick to the rubix cube. give up our social, took us into the bailout funds even more we were not part of europe. these are the people who say that the european union has not gotten too much power and they joined the rural if they were in power for a long run-up. he likes to talk about standing up to vested interest but the fact is he will never stand up to to be vested in -- the trade unions and brussels. >> while there is wide agreement in britain as to the need for reforms in our relationship with the european union, with the prime minister -- would the prime minister agree that th

be based strictly on objective economic contributions and guided by the twin mandates of full employment. the unintended consequences of this bill would be to open the federal reserve to political influence and that would have a negative impact on the fed's independence and its ability to produce sound economic policy. i urge a strong bipartisan no vote. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from california. mr. issa: it's now my honor to yield one minute to the gentleman from texas, mr. farenthold. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from texas is recognized for one minute. mr. farenthold: thank you, mr. chairman. you know, the constitution grants us the power to coin money and regulate the value thereof and we've delegated this to the fed. unfortunately we've ta tied our hands behind our back with respect to seeing what they're doing and it's our duty to conduct oversight. a moment ago mr. frank said the audit was just fist pounding and chest pounding. i disagree. it's the first step, it's us doing our homework to determine what needs to be done to reform the fed. cha
